Daren Pratley has signed a 3yr deal to stay a Swansea it will be announced with in the next few days. Forest have asked Swansea not to make it public yet and allow time for their fans to get over it!

Pratley is staying put!Fact it's a done deal!(19)(38)

Hey DrewzyBhoy

I think Lawrence will be an excellent signing for Celtic if he comes, same with Ramis.

It would not be good for David Marshall to come back to Celtic, he is a legend at Parkhead but he is well known for flapping at crosses in the Championship.

Whittingham would be a good signing because he seems to be a free scoring winger, goals from midfield being one of they key factors missing from last season's Celtic team. He was among the top scorers in the championship from wide midfield.

As you say Kayal has good reports but I know nothing about him, ditto Westwood.

Ross MacCormack was a bit of a flash in the pan two seasons ago but he didn't do it last year, he couldnt get a game for Chopra and Bothroyd.

Camara and Wallace would both be good signings to compete with Mulgrew.

Speroni and St Ledger would both be excellent signings but I can't see either of them being allowed to leave by their clubs.

Bellamy is a possibility. I can't imagine McFadden joining because that would alienate almost half of the Scotland fans and at the moment he is the talisman and focal point for the scottish supporters, a situation no Scot would lightly compromise.

The signing I'm most excited about would be Hooper. The guy scored 20 goals for a team who were in a relegation dogfight, that's a much more impressive accomplishment than 20 at a top club as he wouldn't have had nearly as many chances. Imagine what he could do with the amount of chances Celtic can create!

To the person who said his source reveals a deal has been made with a unknown club for Ozil of Bremen. I have just been told that Wenger has stayed behind in Bremen while the team moved on maybe Ozil is the reason


Bremen?? Arsenal and Wenger have been in Austria
Wenger was in South Africa then came back to London
then with Arsenal to Austria
As much as I would like it to happen I don't believe they have been to Germany

Got any proof ?(9)(53)

Mufc

they have another target its a cam which is exactly what we need

Siem de Jong

last season he scored 17 goals in 34 matches from midfield. he is exactly what we need.

Does anyone know is Defour left or right footed? Reason I ask is that Utd and Fergie are at a "sliding doors" moment (the film). Buy Defour with injury concerns , just like we did with Hargreaves. If Defour is right footed, where is the balance in the team? It would leave only Evra as a left footed player (young enough to keep playing). Or buy Ozil with a very good left foot. So Fergie buys Defour and Utd finish 4th as he struggles with injury all season. Fergie buys Ozil and his verve sees Utd challenge for the title again. Which door is it rumoured Fergie is going through? Red man(11)(21)

Barnsley and Doncaster are interested in Cardiff's Paul Quinn.

However, if he is sold on, Cardiff will have to give a % of the transfer fee to Motherwell.

Cardiff are down to the bare bones, playerswise, and are set to promote their most promising youngsters to the firstteam squad as the transfer embargo continues.(10)(8)

Why do celtic fans keep saying that bellemys only option is celtic and that he said he wouldn't play for another EPL team.Why? he's already played for Newcastle, west ham and currently Man City doesn't sound like a guy who's loyal to one club

My bets are on Tottenham

BECAUSE BELLAMY SAID IT HIMSELF IN AN INTERVIEW. PRETTY GOOD SOURCE I THINK.


Errrm, no he didn't, he said that he couldn't see himself playing for another epl team and that left CARDIFF as his only option as all his family live there!!(9)(22)

Up before the beak next month again and Motherwell have joined Charlton in demanding their money for past transfers. they still have two months outstanding of last quarters HMRC bill and now there is another 3 months to pay. They aint going to make the first game of the season they won't get away with it this time.(20)(5)

 23 Jul 2010 21:26:11
Heard from someone connected at ibrox that rangers will sign three players who are of sufficient quality to walk straight into the team. Along with another two loan signings. They have looked at what is being bought across the city and believe they will have a far superior starting elleven. But are prepared to take a bit of a gamble with regards to the size of the pool. On the downside rumours persist about bougys possible departure, but he hardly played last season and we still strolled it.(26)(19)

 

 23 Jul 2010 21:28:24
Lincoln is in Lincolnshire, about 200 miles from London. Fail!

Just herd that Roy Hodgson is looking to bring in Huntelaar . Won't be signing Aguero as liverpool simply don't have the money for him as At Madrid will want about 40 mill for him. If not Huntelaar he will turn his attentions to Zamora. Also will make a move for Paul Konchesky from his old club instead or Bridge as it would cost to much for bridge and his wages are far to high for a average at best left back.(19)(21)

First of all i'm from Greece and i want to say smth about ninis(from panathinaikos) it is very young it's a promise player BUT it is like a fake diamond and panathinaikos ask for ridiculous money..with simple words it's not worth and if we get him he will not play or play for reserves or on loan i'm 100% sure for that..stop saying it is great player..it is good only for small teams like panathinaikos.

secondly i would like to know , seriously, what is going on with defour i like him as a player and i think he would help us A LOT.
anyone who know true rumours and not vaporings i would like to post smth(3)(11)

Charlton news

charlton are the subject of another takeover from an english business man he bid 20mil for the club, it is rumoured to be duncan bannatyne of dragons den or sir paul mccartney, the x beatle has been a fan for a few seasons since he moved to hyde park home, hes been seen near the valley in recent weeks.on the player front freddy eastwood will complete a season long loan with steve finnan another possible.(4)(7)

L.F.C News: i work at a hospital and a solicoter was due in for minor surgery on monday but got rearranged and had it done yesturday as he could not make monday because he had to attend the takeover of liverpool f.c with an arabian consortium. news went around the hospital straight away. can't be botherd making rumours up, plus its not worth my job. just wait and see. but there was alot of messing around about his rearrangement.(31)(31)

 

 23 Jul 2010 20:47:14
Just like Gerrard, Torres will stay. However, im not sure Mascherano will. To be honest if he goes, he will leave us a healthy £25m to spend on new players. We need a class left back and cover, central midfielder if he leaves and another winger, not forgetting a top quality striker.

There has been links with Bridge, Taiwo and Santon for the left back position. Out of these three i would much prefer Santon. Rumours about a center midfielder has included the likes of Defour, Parker, VDV and also Cambiasso. Possible wingers have included, Young, Turan and SWP. Hoping for Young to be honest, as it would be a brilliant signing. Hodgson is keen on the player and Villa have been rumoured to be eying up Celtic's McGeady. Then as for the striker options, the rumours include Remy, Huntelaar and Aguero. Torres is keen on the signing of Aguero and said it would show the club's intent, personally i think this would be the kind of signing to reignite Liverpool's title challenge. Remy looks as though he is moving to the Hammers now unless Liverpool rival their bid. And Tottenham are now the favourites to sign Hunterlaar.

I would like to see Santon plus another left back as cover. Then would be happy for Javier to be sold for around £25 to raise funds to buy Aguero a replacement central midfielder and then would be pleased to welcome Ashley Young or SWP to Anfield as well.

I know you are a keen Liverpool supporter Ed, so do you have any opinions on this. And have you heard anymore rumours linked with the Merseyside Club?

Feel free to comment, CDP(36)(27)

"Ahh, but Rafa valued him at 30m when he was the seller.Now that he is the buyer and armed with the full knowledge that the player wants to join him, Rafa will value him at a lot less . I can see a deal agreed ~ 22m or maybe a player + ~10m.
Roy"

I hope your wrong Roy (no offence) if Rafa does go down this route of looking for a cheap deal then would seriously damage the respect from the Liverpool fans towards him. I'm hoping that now the Fabregas to Barca deal seems to be fading (according to reports) that they will come in as well and start a bidding war. Guess we just have to wait and see how it pans out.

SlimJim

I don't think there will be a bidding war as Barca are interested in Fab so he may stay if Liverpool don't get an offer they feel is right. The Special one at Real is trying to sort out his defence this season
Dons nil(12)(9)

 

 23 Jul 2010 20:49:45
ARSENAL

ok, first to the Eduardo replacement. Nobody to be bought in, the replacements/s are Jay Simpson and Theo Walcott! If you remember Henry was once a winger (same as Walcott) and Wenger believes it is now time to let him play as a striker. Now i'm not saying Walcott is the new henry but i've got a feeling he could be pretty darn good! Also Wenger is going to see how Simpson does in the rest of preseason before deciding whether to send him out on loan or keep him. Same applies to wilshere, if he plays well Wenger will keep him and use him as Walcott's replacement on the right wing, if wenger sends him out on loan Giovinco will be bought in or maybe even Ozil! Anyone that says Wenger said he won't buy an attacker, he said Striker which is a different thing.

Onto defenders! Campbell will sign a 1 year contract (remember arsenals policy for 30+ years). This wasn't the plan but wenger has been priced out on a lot of defenders (not that we don't have the money), this therefore means that we only need to sign 1 more defender which will be:

Cahill for £14,000,000
Jagielka for £20,000,000
Mertasacker for £14,000,000
Tasci for £6,000,000

Finally Goalkeepers, It will again be a case of deciding if what we have is good enough (which it is undoubtably not). If Wenger wants a new goalie it will be :

Schwarzer £4,000,000
James £0

And if required youth team players will be promoted such as: JET, Barazite, Hoyte, Randall, Nordveit.

Team for next year is signings are all made

Schwarzer
Clichy New Signing Vermaelen Sagna
Song
Fabregas Nasri/Denilson
Wilshere/new signing/Walcott Arshavin/Rosicky
RVP/Chamakh

 23 Jul 2010 20:50:46
Editor, is there any truth in the marcell Jansen story I for one hope so, as he looks a better option than Bridge or taiwo. Jansen is the type of signing we need.The german players can adapt to the premiership. He is a big strong lad and reminds me of markus babbel. Hope we get him. {editor's note – there is definitely some truth in it, there is an interest being shown, but that is all it is at the moment.}(16)(7)

 

 23 Jul 2010 20:56:12
To Garry: As for your "breaking news" about Aguero, I seriously doubt that the economics will be there to have Torres and Aguero at LFC. I see people are actually believing this to be possible.
Kun wants big wages, Torres got huge wages.
Kun may come, if Torres leaves, together with someone like Huntelaar. But your wishing for too much, mate. It's not exactly christmas at the club right now. Masch's transfer money will not be enough and still leaves a glaring hole at the DM position.(18)(13)

 

 23 Jul 2010 21:00:15
Just to rubbish all the rumours about Nigel de Jong joining either Arsenal or Spurs if Milner comes to Eastlands.
Nigel de Jong is not leaving manchester and is in Mancini's first team plans(15)(11)

The figures being quoted for Mascharano are ridiculous hasnt he only got 1 year left on his contract?
This would mean that he could sign for someone else in January. Ed can you confirm? {editor's note – his contract expires 30th June 2012.}(5)(14)

 

 23 Jul 2010 21:05:08
Why does that Bristol city fan always ask three times, my theory is his accent has put numerous women off over the years, to the point he just hassles them over and over, please please please, anyhow for you mate, your stadium plans are in tatters after planning was denied for a sainsburys on ashton gate, this leaves plymouth as the only viable candidate in the south west as they have planning accepted for a 48,000 seat stadium, which in turn might adversely effect Bristols promotion plans.(5)(8)

Re>
"Well its widely reported that Rafa rated him at at least 30M and seen as he is the one that wants to buy him then he can't expect to get him for 20M as you say. at a bare minimum he wouldn't go for would be 26M (IMO) and still don't reckon LFC would pay out 1013M for Cambiasso. But lets see if you prove me wrong. don't it!"

Ahh, but Rafa valued him at 30m when he was the seller.Now that he is the buyer and armed with the full knowledge that the player wants to join him, Rafa will value him at a lot less . I can see a deal agreed ~ 22m or maybe a player + ~10m.

Ed correct me if I am wrong but did Rafa not state he would not sell him for £50mil?? so how come now he wants him he is worth half the price???

Wato6388 {editor's note – and when he gets him at Inter he will value him at a ridiculous sum again. Just because he wants that amount to sell someone doesn't mean he would pay it to get them.}(7)(3)

Hartlepool are said to be on the verge of being taken over by a Singpore based group, replacing IOR.

Just thought I'd throw this out there Milan Jovanovic has been allocated number 14. Seeing as Riera's departure was obviously expected when they asked him if he'd let Cole have number 10 I anticipated he'd be given number 11. Could there be a newcomer who's eyeing up that number? Turan? (currently 10 at Gala), also, to further fuel the Huntelaar rumours, his numbers the vacant 7!

Oh and to answer a question from this morning, Danny Wilson wouldn't be home grown once he's been at Liverpool for 3 years. In a nutshell, the ruling is that you have to spend 3 years BEFORE you turn 21, therefore the latest you could effectively bring someone to an English or Welsh club and have then become "homegrown" in 3 years time is if you signed them the day before their 18th birthday.

Fun site, but I wish the editor would refrain from posting the clearly bull ones, one's littered with errors whereby ANY credibility is immediately shot down, especially as we then have to endure a shedload of posts pointing out what a tit the original poster was. But yeah, overall, fun site.(10)(6)

Mascherano is onedimensional, and a luxury LFC do not need: let the defenders defend, and sell Mascherano on. He, like a lot of other players, has to indulge in the annual whinge and it's getting tiresomeoffer him to Barcelona for 24m + Abidal, buy Anthony Annan(a hardtackling ballplaying midfielder) for 8m, FC Porto's Uruguayan LB lvaro Pereira for 6m, and Bryan Ruiz for 10m. If Babel goes too, get Arda Turan or Stephane Sessegnon for the wings what a shame Adam Johnson went to MCFC, he'd have been great.(24)(13)

 

 23 Jul 2010 20:39:52
Hammers facts

1) I mentioned earlier today that the Hammers are after a south american playmaker and guessed it was Ramires..I WAS WRONG.

The South American playmaker is, and I'm not sure I can believe ir either, none other than a certain NEYMAR. Hammers owners have pushed the boat out for both REMY and NEYMAR (as they said they would do so with their own fund if the right players came along).

This will see the Hammers field a formidable forward line of Barrera and Remy on the flanks and Neymar in the hole behind Cole.
Good times ahead me thinks?(8)(21)

"I really can't see Robben joining, thankfully, one of the biggest cheats.. in the world." Is this intended to be sarcastic? Robben lights up games of football as he has showed on numerous occasions this year, and is vastly underated compared to some of the Premier League's highly valued "stars". Now, West Ham are looking at Kevin Doyle to bolster their attack, also they will keep Matthew Upson. {editor's note – he also dives and feigns injury, to get players booked and sent off, on a regular basis. Far more regular than any good work he does, so no, nothing sarcastic about calling a cheat a cheat.}(2)(16)

Ramires?..very good chance this could happen!
Lukaku?..this will happen at some point although his father has stated that he wants the boy to finish his education before moving; if it happened this year he would be loaned back for a season (don't be shocked to see Drogba back at Marseille in a year or two).
Srna?..this was paper talk, pure and simple; he wouldn't get in the team before Bosingwa or Ivanovic.

How can inter sign masch if they have a three month transfer ban.

Benno LFC

Benno, i did a little bit of research and found that Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has been banned from running the club for 3 months, Its not exactly a transfer ban.

If there was a transfer ban in place then they'd be linked with no one, and surely a transfer ban means no one can be sold either..(38)(16)

I'm not someone claiming to work for the club or anything, I'm just a lifelong Chelsea fan with a hunch! After Ross Turnbull's horrific blunder against Ajax today (plus his inexperience), Cech's injury and Hilario's inconsistency, I reckon Ancelotti is surely considering signing another keeper and possibly offloading Hilario. Potential target? Sounds a bit absurd, but David James. you heard it here first (unless someone's already posted this)!(28)(29)

To Phat_Toffee_Ecc,
You must not watch football that much as Cannovaro has already left Juve and joined the arab club AlAlhi so you got that badly wrong and Johan Elmander, I mean come on he is awful! I would say a more realistic target would be Landon Donavan being resigned but he has already said he is glad to be home and would like to stay in LA and with interest from City which would leave them with a problem.Someone like Rodallega could be a suitable replacement for Yakubu who, I believe, will almost certaintly leave the club as he has lost all his form.(13)(15)

"Everton Rumours

These rumours are GUARENTEED 100% LEGIT!!

Moyes is looking to sell the Yak for around £23m if he gets that he will invest in Boltons Johan Elmander as a replacement. I am not sure how much Bolton will want for the striker however.

Moyes doesn't want to sell Joey Yobo but if the right offer came in he will attempt to shock the footballing world by trying for Fabio Cannavaro. Big Dave is hoping that Cannavaro will leave Juve like he did a few years ago when things got tough at the Stadio Del Alpi. and a season of no champions league football ahead may make him want to look for a move to the premier league.

Other than these two signings Moyes will be fairly quiet in the transfer window, if Bill Kenwright gives him a bit of money he may try to lure Raul AND OR Luca Toni to goodison next season. however these are both unlikely and Moyes knows this.

Watch this space!!

Phat_Toffee_Ecc"

Ok, Firstly Legit correct?, maybe about 2 or 3 years ago you may of had a chance.

1. Fabio Cannavaro has recently joined a Dubai club, Al Alhi Dubai. So to move to Everton after joining them is not going to happen.

2. Yakubu, Doubt he is worth the price you mentioned mostly more but Elmander??, for the price you quoted?, Doubt it. Bolton signed him for 10Million and they wouldn't let him leave anywhere near 2 3Mil maybe 7 8 Mil and you've got a chance. Plus, He is in Owen Coyle's Plans.

3. Luca Toni has recently joined Genoa, again to move to everton after agreeing this is again very very very unlikely.

4. Raul is on the verge of joined Shalke04 in the Bundesliga perhaps he could move to everton but the german club is the only one showing strong interest.

Legit, I think not.(6)(50)

I have just this second been informed by a very reliable source that liverpool are in discussion with Sergio Aguero's Agent regarding a possible move to Liverpool as this was one of the transfers Fernando Torres said To Purslow would show him that the club is moving forward!!!

Also Javier Mascherano will NOT sign for inter milan until Mario Balotelli has been signed by Man City, once Balotelli signs Masch will sign.

Liverpool will then announce the Aguero deal

First of all, We have already turned down a £7m bid for the Yak from West Ham. Moysie will sell if he can get nearer £9m.
Secondly, Moysie does not go for big name players who are past their prime he always builds for the future. Cannavaro was a fantastic player but he has one season left at best. If he had the money to pay the kind of wages Luca Toni would demand he would go out & find 2 or 3 younger prospects who he could mould into the type of player that he wants in the famous blue shirt.
Finally, if DM is looking for anyone at the moment it is likely to be someone to cover Bainsey at left back.

You're not pulling the blue wool over any true Evertonians eyes with twaddle like this.
As we all say,

But lets see if you prove me wrong. don't it!"

Ahh, but Rafa valued him at 30m when he was the seller.Now that he is the buyer and armed with the full knowledge that the player wants to join him, Rafa will value him at a lot less . I can see a deal agreed ~ 22m or maybe a player + ~10m.

I thought this made sense and showed maturity, not upsetting anybody so that one day he can come over here. Now he is being linked with both Mancs, Arsenal and Chelsea. Do these rumours have any truth behind them?(21)(17)

Hammers facts

1) REMY is a done deal, as Le Arse and Liverpool have not made rival bids. This will be concluded on Tuesday when REMY is due in London for a medical. The fee is £9 million, plus £3.5 in add ons.

2) SWP is being considered should Man City offer him up at a reasonable fee..ie £6 million.

3) Anton Ferdinand has been bid for, but the initial £3 million offer has been turned down. If a deal is not done then Tel Ben Haim will be signed on a free.

4) Clerc the French right back has been offered terms (he is a free agent) and we are expecting him to accept my the end of the week.

5) One more player will sign and this is hoped to be a central midfield playmaker from South America whose name is being kept under wraps, I suspect it is Ramires on loan..watch this space

Robben has said that he believes liverpool's attacking force is one of the best, if not the best in Europe. Here is what he said:

"You look at those as a front three and you struggle to find a better front three in Europe and I include Barcelona's in that."
He is talking about Gerrard, Torres and Cole. Could this be a hint? The answer is no, i very much doubt he will leave Bayern.

However this attack looks set to be strengthened by the fact that Liverpool are in the market for a striker and perhaps a deal for Huntelaar is on the cards. This could involve Babel going the other way. Also as Albert Riera is set to leave the club too, Liverpool may need a new winger, therefore a deal for Arda Turan might happen. This would only happen if Babel goes too and even then it would not be certain as we have maxi and Jovanovic and i do not know how they will be played this season.


Onto the left back situation. Man City are seemingly unwilling to sell Wayne Bridge and are said to have told Liverpool to 'make a serious offer' but have insisted Bridge is happy at Eastlands. This means a deal for Marcell Jansen could happen. Or maybe Hodgson will try to get a deal with Inter for Davide Santon as part of a deal that would see Mascherano go the other way.

Ed what do you think about the above?

Poki.

Feel free to commen {editor's note – Reira going was just Roy showing that he won't put up with players with a poor attitude. Him punching a youth team player in training ensured he had no future at the club and it was only a matter of time before he went. No replacement needed, though Dalglish might still persuade Hodgson to move for Turan if the funds are there. I really can't see Robben joining, thankfully, one of the biggest cheats and most injury prone players in the world.}(31)(29)

To the lad who said this:


To the The Trump Card : "I have been in touch with a few Valencia representatives, and have been informed of a couple of transfer targets for the Spanich club.

Landon Donovan is a player who Valencia are extremely interested in and that the club are chasing Demy de Zeeuw of Ajax.

Also, supposedly, AS Roma have rejected an offer that has been tabled for Phillippe Mexes.

Genuine transfer targets, although I believe they are unlucky to complete a deal for any of them"

Sorry mate but Valencia are 500 million euros in debt, hence the reason for selling both star players (villa, silva). Its going to be a challenge to hang on to Mata and i can't see them spending £12mil+ on mexes and £14mil+ on donovan who has expressed he either wants to stay in the MLS or a move to the EPL.

Other rumours that will happen soon!
Jol is taying with Ajax, expect Fulham to sign Erikson or Dave Jones from Cardiff with players in the camp wanting Jones so no Keane im afraid.
Klassjan Huntelaar to Liverpool for around 1014 million and Mascha to Inter.
Balotelli to City for £25million.
City to make £25 million bid for Milner.

Huntelaar to liverpool is a possibility as AC milan president said that he (huntelaar) would be joining a premier league club and if he does join liverpool babel will be going in the opposite direction. what is most likely to happen is that huntelaar will join on loan with option to buy at the end of the season if bought in on loan which would only cost LFC 2mil in fees

Utd will definitely push through a deal for Ozil while Defour will be signed if a club comes in with a tempting offer for Carrick.

To whoever said this:

IPSWICH TOWN: manager Roy Keane is set to swoop for Man.Utd midfielder Tom Cleverly. and is reportedly interested paying around the £400,000 mark

Fergie has already said "Tom is a very talented boy, he is going to be a very, very good footballer but we are considering putting him out on loan to a Premier League club as well"
so basically no ipswich won't be getting him on loan or permanently!

Much as I think you are right, it's on the ITFC website and various other Forums that Town are about to sign a player on a one year loan within the next week. Would be a good signing and Sir Alex was impressed with the way ITFC looked after Danny Simpson.(5)(26)

I know lots of people spout rubbish, and no I have never met the man, but I know his wifes cousin (I know it sounds tenuous) who lives in Barcelona where he still has a house in Castelldefels. I asked him and he said that Riquelme was definitely staying in Argentina, so I guess this is a non rumour!!

Cheers {editor's note all I have heard from Leicester is them knocking back a number of bids from Premier League clubs for Hobbs and also asked if they can have Darby on loan for next season. Did Spearing not impress? Only I haven't heard mention of them asking about taking him on loan again yet.}

Man United may not have ridiculous amounts of money to spend, but i don't see why they couldn't buy more than one of their proposed targets. They have sold a few players out, so that's reaped a bit of doe in, and i swear 20 million, is the standard budget Fergie gets anyway. so surely Defour and ninis, or maybe Ozil instead of Ninis (that's if Bremen stick to their decreased valuation), can't be bought together, cuz surely that wouldn't cost over 30 mills, or there about, so im sure we have the funds to do so, if Fergie feels we need to of course

Liverpool are looking at Salcido (PSV) and Cissokho (Lyon) for the left back position. Mascherano will hand in a transfer request next week as his agent has been in talks directly with Rafa Benitez. The sticking point is the sale price last year Rafa was quoted as saying Mascherano was worth £50m. Liverpool MD, Christian "Cecil" Puslow, will try and create a bidding war with "leaked" news that Barcelona are also interested. This is seen as a final dig at Rafa to stop him getting his man or using up his summer transfer budget.(35)(18)

Defour: 23 Jul 2010 13:19:14:

"What I don't understand about this is that Defour returned from his injury last season he played 13 games for Liege between mid January and mid March.

So unless he got injured again, why is there a fitness issue? Did he pick up another injury in the last game of the season or over the summer?

I know the agent was saying he is at 85% fitness, but why is that? {editor's note he picked up another injury and wasn't expected to be back fit for a while yet. That was why United never moved for him straight away, he had no chance of passing a medical.}"

It seems pretty strange that this is coming to the fore again. Until a few months ago I would have had Defour nailed on for Manchester United this summer then out of the blue he extended his contract in Belgium (March or April time). If he does come to England, I would expect him to go to Manchester United.

Sharkey.


if bloody Hargreaves can pass a medical, then i see no reason why United are holding back!
he would be like the Fabregas of United, maybe not as immense, but close

Hatem Ben Arfa will sign to either Arsenal or Liverpool on a season long loan, with the option to buy. He has been offered by Marseille to Newcastle too, but he is likely to want European football.


He wasnt even offered to Arsenal..

He was offered to Liverpool: Who rejected it as they have just signed Jovanovic who covers the same positions.

Everton: Who have had interest.

Newcastle: Who Hughton likes but hasnt made a move.

An Unnamed German side: Who he will reject as he wants to play in the premier league.

Its between Everton and Newcastle, Arsenal more than likely will sign there new keeper and that will be their lot.

bamba will be told he will be first choice when bougherra goes and he will also use them as a stepping stone.
outs McGregor to spurs for 3mil+3mil add ons (another big earner off the wage bill)

this is my view and I think the team will be good enough to win the league and also pay off a bit of the debt but will have to rely on youth.

Just a point about liverpool's budget, the rumours were that we had 15 million to spend, with the free transfers and 2 million on Wilson that leaves 12 million plus the sales a insua and riera gives us about 20 million so people saying we can't afford Huntelaar are wrong, not that i think we are trying to sign him anyway. With more deadwood being removed from the squad we should have enough to by 2 left backs and a striker, and if Mascherano goes you can probably include another 25+ million allowing for another 2 to 3 players. My feeling is atleast one more english player will be signed possibly bridge or if mascherano goes maybe a cheeky bid for milner.(35)(14)

 

 23 Jul 2010 15:37:29
Well looks like arsenal are only going for a GK and CB and maybe a Midfielder. Well im just gonna keep it realistic here i think either shwazcher or frey would come in for gk. Cb metersacker for sure i think wenger will definately try and get him if not Tasci or Jagielka. i think metersacker would be a better signing than Phil Jagielka. Mid with the sales of of Eduardo we have a little bit more transfer kitty so i would expect wenger to buy a midfielder now or not. I would like to see either Ozil or Gourcuff come but i know either would be a dream transfer for arsenal. i hope wenger goes for ozil fast if not then he goes for gourcuff as he wants to leave borduex and lyon and arsenal are fav's. although arsene said he doesn't want him it may be a smokescreen to snatch him up. CF no one will come in. plus i hope Fab don't leave im sick of all these Barca stars pleading him to come it makes him uneasy and pressure's him into a decision. Plus he will improve more in arsenal and will still be our great captain

I think a lot of you lads will agree with me when I say it seems Remy was all just a bunch of smokescreen for the signing of Huntelaar on loan. Excellent work by Hodgeson if so because we will be able to afford him easy by end of season. Great aquisition methinks just think back to his ajax days and he'll definitely get a game.

Think Babel will be a loss if he goes the other way as we didn't give him enough chances. looking forward to, I think, seeing Lucas blossom under hodgson and perhaps a more forward role.(29)(17)

HERE IS A ARTICLE FROM CRAIG BELLAMY REGARDING MOVING FROM MAN CITY?.

For you idiots that talk pish, this is real hard facts.

MANCHESTER CITY FORWARD CRAIG BELLAMY;if i leave eastlands, it'll be for cardiff city.

Manchester City forward Craig Bellamy says he would be willing to drop down a division and join cardiff city in the championship.

The 30yr old has been linked with a move away from eastlands after an apparent row with manager Roberto Mancini.

Former England manager and new Wolfsburg Steve McClaren is reportedly interested in taking Bellamy to Germany but the weslshman says he would not be interested in a move abroad.

Playing anywhere else in europe woud be to much of a strain on my family becaause they do live in Cardiiff, Bellamy told BBC World service.

So it really only limits me to maybe one place or another so that would be it.

Bellamy has been linked with moves to everton, tottenham hotspur and aston villa and cetic among others but admits he could not see himself move to another englsih club, which leaves cardiff as the only option should he leave manchester city.

speaking at a visit to his charity, the craig bellamy foundation, in sierra leone he said there than one or two people run that club (man city) so if i get the vote of confidence off five or six people then ill stay.

But if its a couple in other peoples favour then it might be a little bit different because i do want to be wanted like ever player does.

ive never once and i would never once sit and pick up my money.

i just couldnt do that to myself it would be lying about who i am as a person so probaby look for that next challenge.

But ill be very shocked if its another english club, id be very very shocked indeed.

SO THERE YOU GO HE SAID IT IN BLACK AND WHITE LAST MONTH ON BBC SAYING HE HAD NO INTEREST IN JOINING ANY ENGLISH CLUBS??

now cardiff city are in trouble financially, and move to cardiff city this season woud not be benificial to Bellamy, but can see him joining there next season, now with celtic fc looking at a loan deal for him, it is widely known that was him that told ledley to join celtic fc, saying it is a great club, good league and one of the best supporters you can find anywhere in the world, he has aso said he had unfinished buisness when left celtic fc, and would love to come back to celtic fc to play for the club again in his later years. now with the talk of him going out loan, i can see bellamy going on loan to celtic fc for a season then finishing his career with cardiff city next season.. these are facts and not silly childish rumours, FACTS AND MORE FACTS, SO STOP TALKING CRAP AND AT LEAST HAVE SOME FACTS TO BACK UP YOUR RUMOURS..(32)(25)

Afternoon ED

I have it on very good authority that Forest have reached agreement with Cardiff City for the transfer of Peter Whittingham. I don't claim to know the terms of the deal but that the fee is £1.65m and the lad has penned a four year contract with the two times European kings.

One thing my source has leaked to me though, is that Forest are forwarding the tax element of the fee directly to HMRC as apparently Cardiff can't be trusted to settle these kind of matters.

If I here anything more contact you again(26)(24)

Latest rumour out of edinburgh is that Hughes wants rid of Sol Bamba as soon as for being poisonous to the morale of the team by having a go at Hibs through the media. He will accept as little as 800k for the defender and Paul Hanlon or David Stephens will be more then sufficient to replace him.

I would just like to say to the guy who commented on this rumour

Listening to Neil Lennon's comments on the news , about hoping to sign at least another 4 players , i hope he has "given up" on Sol Campbell and Jimmy Bullard and is looking for younger alternatives , here's my thoughts GK: Keiron Westwood £3m , LB: Lee Wallace £2m but probably end up with Ibrahima Camara £300k , CB: Ivan Ramis £2m , RW: Liam Lawrence £1.7m , ST: Craig Bellamy (loan) , ST: Anthony Stokes £2m , LW: James McFadden £3m with Aiden McGeady to Aston Villa £10m , Glenn Loovens £1.5m , Mark Wilson £750k , Simon Ferry and Paul Caddis £350k to Swindon , Andreas Hinkel £2m to Schalke plus monies for Artur Boruc and Stephen McManus (£3.5m) more than making up the shortfall , i'd like the views of fellow Celtic fans on the subject , no Rangers rubbish please .
Drewzybhoy .

I agree about Bullard, Campbell, etc too old.Think we will go for a young keeper to be back up to Zaluska so Westwood won't happen too dear for a back up.Wallace not worth £2m, Ramis's fee is just £1m due to Mallorca being in administration, Bellamy is possible but can see it happening last day of transfer window.Lawrence too dear, Stokes + McFadden won't be signed.
Who's this Israeli that's being linked?
Also we won't get £10m for McGeady, anything over £7m i think will be accepted.
Jungle Bhoy

Lawrence is only £2million and he wants to come so he would be the most likely to join and mcfadden said he would like to return to scotland where his family is so there is a good possiblity that he will sign.(25)(20)

Mark Reynolds being considered by uncle Walter for the Gers if move for Goncalves doesn't materialise. Holman probably isn't any better than Naismith and Fleck. Hopefully Smith's links at OT will help with a couple of the fringe players like Wellbeck sent north. Davis is a fan and will stay. If a crazy bid came in Craig Bryson would be a decent replacement. He's always done well against the potato bhoys. Bougherra and Miller will go if decent offers come along but they'd be leaving the Champions and playing Champions League football under one of the best coaches in Britain. What other club can give them that.

Celtic will continue to be linked with good players and end up buying from the Championship and take a punt on unknown foreigners. As with last season it'll take till Xmas until they get used to playing together. They do have to improve God bless 'em.(25)(18)

Not so much a rumour but blatantly obvious that Arsenal do not need a striker come the start of this season as Le Boss has already said he is looking for some of the fringe players to prove over the next two months they are ready to force their way in to the first team picture and at the moment RVP, Theo & the meerkat are all fit, so when does the MLS season finish? Who like Becks will be looking for a top club to train at or play for after Xmas?. does 2+2 not equal Titi coming home to the club he loves and supports?

To the person who posted the above.
There might be some truth to this, however this may also hinge on if Fabregas stays. Arsenal will definitely buy one or two long term targets for next season in Jan 2011; don't be surprised to see a big money bid for young English talent; similar to the Walcott deal.

We all knew Sol would stay to make up the coaching staff in the future, along with Thierry Henry. Can't see this being Wenger's exit plan but they both have a great understanding of the Wenger style of play from his most successful years and it would serve as a good apprenticeship as coaches or managers.

N.B: I posted prior to Sol Campbell rejoing Arsenal that he would take coaching role once his legs go. My other post relating to Cole from West Ham didn't happen, as the situation resolved itself at Arsenal.

such a load of rubbish. yes i believe he will sign a new deal with a pay rise but 160,000? rooney will soon be top earner on 130,000 but that's because they need him to stay and he wanted more money too to stop other people sniffing around him. they don't want to loose vidic but definately won't give him that much the highest ever paid?.

I wrote this here yesterday:
"Updates about Israeli players in the EPL & SPL:
Dekel Keinan to Blackpool:
Kienan didn't get a work permit. he'll try to get one based on his future appearences for Israel NT.
Tal BenHaim to Westham:
BenHaim didn't fail his medical, like was reported in England. he passed it and will sign soon.
Biram Cayal to Celtic:
That is fresh news from today. the Maccabi Haifa DM is going to sign for Celtic in the coming week.
Guy Assulin to Blackcurn:
Assulin is currently training with Blackburn, and if they want him, he will sign there.
Ben Sahar to Westham:
Sahar won't be coming to Westham, he signed for Hapoel TelAviv, cause he wants to play CL football (hopefuly)."
Two updates on that:
Keinan got his work permit and WILL play for Blackpool this coming year.
He's a good CB, good in the air, a bit slow, but will be very good for Blackpool.
if they get relegated, i can see him moving to a club like Westham/Blackburn/Bolton next year.
Biram Cayal WILL sign for Celtic in the next few days. the fee will be around 1.4M Euros.
He is a DM, very good in defence, not the brightest in going forward, but he does have very good shots from long range, and sometimes can pass a good long ball.
I think he will be very good buy for Celtic, I can see him take a place in Celtic starting 11 and becoming a star in the SPL.
I think that right now he is in the level of a top Championship team in England, so, good enough for the SPL.(19)(12)

 

 23 Jul 2010 14:58:18
Hatem Ben Arfa will sign to either Arsenal or Liverpool on a season long loan, with the option to buy. He has been offered by Marseille to Newcastle too, but he is likely to want European football. Also Jan Klass Huntelaar is Roy the boys next signing, after being told he is surplus to requirements. J496

the only club that is interested in ben arfa is everton and he would never join newcastle and huntelaar is going nowhere get your facts right

Your sure about this? I wouldn't put it past Arsenal to be in for him as they had a concrete deal for him accepted but the player rejected it and opted for Marseille. His reason he stated was that he didn't want to leave France just yet and wanted to wait until he felt he was ready to leave his country, so if he does join anyone it will be Arsenal, as they can actually afford him.(13)(18)

Just read a villa fan saying that martin o neil will have something up his sleeves as he's known about milner going for a while, but you won't know till the players arrive, then listed players you are signing!! How do you know then? Are you MON's wife? Idiot villa fans as usual! Why would huntelaar (spelling) want to join a team who are destined to finish mid table again for the 15th season in a row!? Unless he is planning on moving to a big club next year, after all that's all the vile are now, a feeder club! You'll end up with mcgeady who is the new malloney, and some second rate striker like Bobby zamora! Start being realistic, you're not a big club, you're just a small town in birmingham.

Yes Im a bluenose, but I'm realistic, we just want to stay up again, and then take things from there. All I'm hearing is villa will be top 4 this year, same as every year, then you sell your best player to a rival! Jokes!!

Anyway, blues are after clyne, and a couple of midfielders, big eck never says who though, so all you that reckon you know are liars, just wait and see.

Do you understand he has a thigh strain and was not on the tour. and secondly for the match on wednesday against braga, he is on the team line up sheet that has been sent to uefa. so he is in the squad so no deal done yet, and no deal will be done until millner leaves to go to man city. until then mcgeady will be at celtic fc until then.

get it right we just bought john ruddy from everton for like 200k, we did have fraser forster on loan from newcastle and he was superb only reason he didn't get into league 1 team of the season was because he was on loan but did win golden glove award. steve harper is old and john ruddy looks to be a great prospect as does forster.

I love this site!

Mr Editor, is there any further news on the Bryan Ruiz to Liverpool rumour from a few days ago?

I love these LFC rumours but as many have said on here already it's safe to say that, unless the takeover happens and frees up a shedload of funds for transfer, Hodgson has to sell players before he can buy. judging by the business done already like Jovanovic and cole for free, Benayoun (sold for 5m?) Wilson (bought for 2m rising to 5m).

Left backs
Bridge (Not worth 5m based on last seasons performances.)
or
Konchesky (Unlikely wasn't there talk of a gentleman's agreement with Al Fayed about not bidding for former players??.)
or
Taiwo (Yes please!)
or
Fucile (Yes please!)

Midfielder:
Banega? (Yes please!)
And/or
Bryan Ruiz? (Yes please!)
Or
Arda Turan? (Yes please!)
And/or
Paul Scharner? (Oh why not!)

Strikers
Huntelaar Part exchange for Babel? (Yes please!)
or
Remy (No idea if he's any good)
or
Aguero (Ha! Ha! Now I'm dreaming.)

Mostly all dependant on if Mascherano goes.
Keep up the good work everyone!

MANCHESTER UNITED BREAKING NEWS!!

Just watching Sky Sports News (405):

The man who does the 'Transfer News' section was on the Phone to Steven Defour's Agent who when asked 'Will Steven be in the Premier League next season?', he paused and replied, 'Never say never.'

Also, Last season when Defour, unfortunately broke his leg, Sir Alex Ferguson sent a letter (copied into Belgian Newspaper at the time) which Wished Defour a speedy recovery. To this Defour came out and said it was a 'Very Nice Gesture' from SAF.

During the Summer Transfer Window of 2009, when the Interest of Defour was made public, Defour was reported to have said, 'If I go to England, I only go to Manchester United.' Unfortunately the injury caused the move to take a step back.

Now Defour is 100% Fit (as said by players Agent) and the move seems to be back on. Standard Liege say they are now waiting for an offer to be made from Manchester United F.C for Steven Defour.

Also, all who say Manchester United are in Debt, it is true, yet not true. The way you describe the debt, you say it is a debt owed to the Bank. Which was of £520m, United payed off £505m when they took a bond. Therefore they owe £15m which has already been payed off steadily.

P.S A bid has been accepted for Sotiris Ninis of £9.6m but the deal is waiting as Manchester United are waiting to see whether they get Steven Defour, who is #1 Target. If they do not sign Defour, they will then go ahead with Ninis. Although if they do get Defour, Ninis may still go through. It is a 50/50.(27)(20)

To mike18 and the editor. I agree on the ninus and defour theory. Do you think its a case of one out and two in? Robert the Red. {editor's note probably, yes. It does seem that way.}

I believe it could be one of three scenario's Defour will come in and no players will leave, apart from Cleverley and Welbeck on loans. (MOST LIKELY)

Or a decent bid for carrick will come in, around the 10m mark and both Defour and ninis will be purchased. Cleverley and Welbeck will still go out on loans. (VERY POSSIBLE)

Worst scenario would be United missing out on both of them which would mean Cleverley will not go out on loan but Welbeck will! (HIGHLY UNLIKELY)

I would like to add Sunderland have saved around 2m on the Titus Bramble deal, they had a 3m kitty for him and got him for just 1m, so expect a 9.5m bid for Carrick soon, but i am sure United will only sell if they can wrap up the other deals first.

No it isn't. The agreement over the sale of Benayoun predates Hodgson. All he is allowed to have is 15M plus sales money HE generates. There is also some confusion as to whether the interpretation means that even players that were also going to be sold anyway such as Insua and Riera means he can't have their money either.

Your pretty much correct the Benayoun money was used to cover some/all of the costs of sacking Rafa and hiring Roy. all other low value sales will go to Roy, it still remains unclear as to wether he would get the full amount if he was to sell Mashc for say £30 mil

Defour: 23 Jul 2010 13:19:14:

"What I don't understand about this is that Defour returned from his injury last season – he played 13 games for Liege between mid January and mid March.

So unless he got injured again, why is there a fitness issue? Did he pick up another injury in the last game of the season or over the summer?

I know the agent was saying he is at 85% fitness, but why is that? {editor's note – he picked up another injury and wasn't expected to be back fit for a while yet. That was why United never moved for him straight away, he had no chance of passing a medical.}"

It seems pretty strange that this is coming to the fore again. Until a few months ago I would have had Defour nailed on for Manchester United this summer – then out of the blue he extended his contract in Belgium (March or April time). If he does come to England, I would expect him to go to Manchester United.

My source reveals a deal has been made with an unamed club for Ozil of Bremen. To be honest i don't believe it but would explain why he hasnt gone yet..
Heard it was Man Utd but to be fair i don't believe it as ive heard fergie is riding out the summer to see if Defour will return to full fitness. He's desperate to add him to his squad. Fergie sees him as a future captain of Utd. Ozil will probably go to Italy with AC or Juve. Bremen will never let him go to the Bundesliga so if not Italy maybe Chelsea? although knowing the English Media i doubt Chelsea would have been able to keep this under wraps!! Also i think they would have to get rid of a few who are earning a fortune to do nothing i.e Deco!!

Just what i'e heard

Pretty sure Milner will end up at eastlands and interesting one is Crouch may be on a move back to LFC, Hodgson big admirer and at the end of the window he may find himself down the pecking order at WHL!!(13)(31)

United fans, it might actually be a good thing if we don't sign Oezil. Sotiris Ninis is every bit as good, if not better, and he won't be overpriced because Greece didn't have a good World Cup. And to the Blackburn fan that said Asamoah Gyan is moving there for 5 mil, keep dreaming. Rennes signed him for 8 mil euros, and considering the World Cup he had, they could sell him for a decent profit, of about 15 mil pounds.

Ed, will we sign Oezil though, or just Ninis, or Defour? {editor's note – I did think it would be Ninis for definite, but that was when I believed Defour to be out injured. I am unsure which of those two are most likely now, but I do think it is one of Ninis or Defour.}(8)(21)

Regarding the Huntelaar stuuf

1) Its not on the LFC website that they've bid for KJH, its just a write up of a Tribalfootball story that they have, and that Tribalfootball story will have come from another prblished source (and so on and so on) and it wouldn't surprise me if Tribalfootball repeated the story later on by lifting it from this report on the LFC website..

2) regarding "before the summer transfer window that we had a fairly small transfer budget of around 20 million pounds. With the left back spot needing to be filled with some quality and a top quality striker to partner Torres needed I don't see how LFC can afford Huntelaar at the present moment! Pure rumours and nothing truthful coming out of the club this week!
.

for 1 liverpool are thinking of signing him on loan.
and for 2 hodgson can spend all the money from the sales of mascha, riera etc."

Well the Riera deal won't exatly burst the coffers £34m tops plus some add ons down the line, at least that's whats been circulating. As for the Masch transfer, well there's so much cr@p circulating about this deal, I'd be surprised if we learnt anything new this week (but happy to be surprised)

Don't also forget the "we need 4 or 5 top players" mantra that was regularly attributed to various LFC players at the end of last season including Torres, Reina and also, IIRC, Benitez himself. My understanding at the time was that whilst this was overplayed and blown up by the media (what isn't?), that it actually had it roots in conversations that had taken place.

With Cole and Jovanovic you could argue that LFC is only half way there, and that irrespective of whatever happens to Masch, LFC will try to sign at least 2 more names of note. RH's current buying power of c. £25m (which includes the Yossi, Insua and Riera money) won't achieve that, and even if you add in money for Kyrgiakos, Degen, El Zhar and Plessis, they'll struggle to get close to £30m, so therefore its logical to assume that Babel (linked as part of a swap deal for KJH) and a couple of fringe players will be out as well as they try to achieve the equivalent buying power of nearer to £40m (ignoring Mascherano). I think Lucas may stay however.(29)(18)

Listening to Neil Lennon's comments on the news , about hoping to sign at least another 4 players , i hope he has "given up" on Sol Campbell and Jimmy Bullard and is looking for younger alternatives , here's my thoughts GK: Keiron Westwood £3m , LB: Lee Wallace £2m but probably end up with Ibrahima Camara £300k , CB: Ivan Ramis £2m , RW: Liam Lawrence £1.7m , ST: Craig Bellamy (loan) , ST: Anthony Stokes £2m , LW: James McFadden £3m with Aiden McGeady to Aston Villa £10m , Glenn Loovens £1.5m , Mark Wilson £750k , Simon Ferry and Paul Caddis £350k to Swindon , Andreas Hinkel £2m to Schalke plus monies for Artur Boruc and Stephen McManus (£3.5m) more than making up the shortfall , i'd like the views of fellow Celtic fans on the subject , no Rangers rubbish please .
Drewzybhoy .

I agree about Bullard, Campbell, etc too old.Think we will go for a young keeper to be back up to Zaluska so Westwood won't happen too dear for a back up.Wallace not worth £2m, Ramis's fee is just £1m due to Mallorca being in administration, Bellamy is possible but can see it happening last day of transfer window.Lawrence too dear, Stokes + McFadden won't be signed.
Who's this Israeli that's being linked?
Also we won't get £10m for McGeady, anything over £7m i think will be accepted.

Don't make me laugh. Liverpool paid 22 million for Mascherano; saved him from obscurity at West Ham benchwarmers group, subsequently turning him into the Argentina's captain and a special player in short supply in this world.

The energy and tigerish nature of the player is unbelievable. He could attack more but his football ethos is to do what he does best and let others worry about that.
He was Argentina's only defensive player in the world cup allowing about 9 attacking players to run raids so you tell me Liverpool will sell him for 18 million. I should coco.

Liverpool's player of the season will begrudgingly leave, that much is true, but for more like 20 million and Muntari/Cambiasso.

Sad to say. Beware the badge kissers of this world.

To the The Trump Card : "I have been in touch with a few Valencia representatives, and have been informed of a couple of transfer targets for the Spanich club.

Landon Donovan is a player who Valencia are extremely interested in and that the club are chasing Demy de Zeeuw of Ajax.

Also, supposedly, AS Roma have rejected an offer that has been tabled for Phillippe Mexes.

Genuine transfer targets, although I believe they are unlucky to complete a deal for any of them"

Sorry mate but Valencia are 500 million euros in debt, hence the reason for selling both star players (villa, silva). Its going to be a challenge to hang on to Mata and i can't see them spending £12mil+ on mexes and £14mil+ on donovan who has expressed he either wants to stay in the MLS or a move to the EPL.

Other rumours that will happen soon!
Jol is taying with Ajax, expect Fulham to sign Erikson or Dave Jones from Cardiff with players in the camp wanting Jones so no Keane im afraid.

Sorry to crush Arsenal dreams, but a source of mine in Italy says Keisuke Honda is wrapping up a deal with AC Milan. Also, Man City, with regards to the Balotelli deal, will get their man very soon. I've heard whispers that Man Utd want to buy Oezil, and for as low as 15 mil pounds. Arsenal don't need him, Chelsea don't really want him, Barca and Real Madrid have too many midfielders (Arsenal fans, Fabregas is not a sure bunker to stay, so don't open yourself up for dissappointment).

Man Utd will wait and wait till in desperation, Werder Bremen sell him for that amount(15 m). I have heard that Ninis would be loaned back to Panathanaikos for the season, when he does put pen to paper, which looks to be very, very soon. Also, Defour and Akinfeev will sign in January.

Thanks for reading, and you saw it here first.(27)(17)

 

 23 Jul 2010 13:19:14
In response to Mike18 and the Editor on this:

A bit of info for the EDITOR and fellow United posters, i have heard a solid rumour to why the Ninis deal has not been wrapped up yet, Panathinaikos accepted the United offer of less than his £9.6m buy out clause, but here's to why it has stalled, it has stalled because United are waiting for Defour to regain full fitness as he is United's main target, he is less than a month away from being 100% fit and then Liege will start to listen to offers although Steven has said United is the only place he wants to be according to his agent.

Ninis is on standby just in case Defour has a setback or City offer him 500k a week to sign (slight exaggeration), United will go in with a 10m bid but are willing to go to 15m! Steven Defour can play anywhere in the midfield, he can play as a defensive midfielder or attacking midfielder. This is a clear indication that United do not have much more than 15m to spend so United supporters need to stop posting rubbish, United could wrap up Defour and Ninis for around 2022m but it seems they cannot afford to. Ed is this what you are hearing too?

Mike18 {editor's note that would explain the hold up, I know Fergie would love to add Defour but his injury scuppered the deal initially. I was expecting it to go through in January instead, but if he is nearing fitness it would make sense.}


What I don't understand about this is that Defour returned from his injury last season he played 13 games for Liege between mid January and mid March.

So unless he got injured again, why is there a fitness issue? Did he pick up another injury in the last game of the season or over the summer?

I know the agent was saying he is at 85% fitness, but why is that? {editor's note – he picked up another injury and wasn't expected to be back fit for a while yet. That was why United never moved for him straight away, he had no chance of passing a medical.}(8)(19)

For United Lovers

United are allegedly preparing a £13million move for Belgium's Steven Defour.
Someone said it absolutely right that Man U are looking for other options before they go for Sotiris Ninis.
And to be honest man u are not bankrupt but they have limited funds for this summer to spend.
So if a Deal for Defour turns out NO, then we might get Ninis easily with the budget SAF have.

So dear Man U fans stop imagining that Ozil, Bellotti or some other idiot will be joining at OT this season.

Just one player in the midfield will do the job, and rest of the squad is strong enough to hold other clubs from getting the title back.

Well, Vidic will not be leaving United, this is the reason why "Manchester United will offer central defender Nemanja Vidic a contract extension and pay rise to stop him joining Real Madrid this summer."

Believe IT or NOT.

Why are Arsenal not making an official complaint against Barcelonaand their players?? they are taking itin turns to destabilise the situation and should be punished by UEFA.
IKE.



Its a valid point! had arsenal done this, we would have been kicked out of all competitions!
how can they consistently (and this is over the course of a few years) continue to behave in such a way and it go unnoticed?? the usual eurpoean chiefs turning a blind eye to europes blueeyed boy (barca)!

on the rumours front, think sol campbell looks to be staying so it would seem only an additional keeper would be brought in.



Although I agree that Barca are in the wrong and should be punished. They are not doing anything different to what Aresenal and Wenger did with Chamakh (Lets not forget that Wenger tried to buy him, the bid was rejected, so said he will just wait till he is a free agent.. surprising that Chamakh then turned down Bouruex's contract offer).

Albert Riera has just arrived in Athens to complete medical and to finish personal terms with Olympikos on sky sports news. Once the transfer is completed Liverpool will move for Bridge to cover the vacant left back position, with the money from the Riera deal.

On a personal view on the Jan Klass Huntelaar deal i feel Liverpool havn't got the money to buy him, so a loan deal could be done. If Mascherano is to be sold then the money raised by his sale could be used to buy Jan Klass Huntelaar, and a replacement defensive midfielder. Defouer? But any big money moves will have to wait until after the sale of Mascherano.(37)(15)

Villa News.

I Thought i'd share this info, As a few sources in the club have said these too me.

MON, Is waiting for the Milner ordeal to end (Hence the announcement yesterday) But will not be accepting Steven Ireland in p/x, But is willing to receive Richards or Michael Johnson. Villa have also made tentative enquiries for several players as to there availability & if willing to move, No figures or prices asked just yet.

The Players are, Bobby Zamora, David Bentley, Aiden McGeady, Robbie Keane, Alex Witsel, Michael Johnson, Micah Richards.

Mon's no1 target is Bobby Zamora, but Fulham are employing a no in's & no's out policy just now. The Robbie Keane interest is just that incase a move for Zamora doesn't happen.

David Bentley has been wanted by MON for the past two transfer windows so there is previous but spurs are waiting on a few replies before selling. Aiden McGeady, is the back up option and only that.

Richards adds options to the backline especially at Rb.

Johnson & Witsel are both highly wanted to replace Milner but Mon would settle Johnson (Even though he is still recovering) if he's allowed by City to move for Richards also. If not then it's Witsel to be bought and Richards in on a p/x from Cit.

The players hoping to move on are, L.Young, Beye, Shorey, Sidwell, ReoCoker.

Ashley Young will be signing a new contract soon, And Gabby isn't going anywhere.(16)(17)

Hatem Ben Arfa will sign to either Arsenal or Liverpool on a season long loan, with the option to buy. He has been offered by Marseille to Newcastle too, but he is likely to want European football. Also Jan Klass Huntelaar is Roy the boys next signing, after being told he is surplus to requirements. J496

the only club that is interested in ben arfa is everton and he would never join newcastle and huntelaar is going nowhere get your facts right(39)(34)

To the person who said this :

Huntelaar to Liverpool becoming more unrealistic as LFC quoted before the summer transfer window that we had a fairly small transfer budget of around 20 million pounds. With the left back spot needing to be filled with some quality and a top quality striker to partner Torres needed I don't see how LFC can afford Huntelaar at the present moment! Pure rumours and nothing truthful coming out of the club this week!
..

for 1 liverpool are thinking of signing him on loan.
and for 2 hodgson can spend all the money from the sales of mascha, riera etc.
anyone agree?(39)(31)

"Hey Ed, 5.5m for Benayoun, 5m for Insua, 4.5 for Reira and the 15m transfer amount supposedly given to Roy. Thats around 30m in the transfer kitty."

No it isn't. The agreement over the sale of Benayoun predates Hodgson. All he is allowed to have is 15M plus sales money HE generates. There is also some confusion as to whether the interpretation means that even players that were also going to be sold anyway such as Insua and Riera means he can't have their money either.(18)(30)

I have been in touch with a few Valencia representatives, and have been informed of a couple of transfer targets for the Spanich club.

Landon Donovan is a player who Valencia are extremely interested in and that the club are chasing Demy de Zeeuw of Ajax.

Genuine transfer targets, although I believe they are unlucky to complete a deal for any of them.

A bit of info for the EDITOR and fellow United posters, i have heard a solid rumour to why the Ninis deal has not been wrapped up yet, Panathinaikos accepted the United offer of less than his £9.6m buy out clause, but here's to why it has stalled, it has stalled because United are waiting for Defour to regain full fitness as he is United's main target, he is less than a month away from being 100% fit and then Liege will start to listen to offers although Steven has said United is the only place he wants to be according to his agent.

Ninis is on standby just in case Defour has a setback or City offer him 500k a week to sign (slight exaggeration), United will go in with a 10m bid but are willing to go to 15m! Steven Defour can play anywhere in the midfield, he can play as a defensive midfielder or attacking midfielder. This is a clear indication that United do not have much more than 15m to spend so United supporters need to stop posting rubbish, United could wrap up Defour and Ninis for around 2022m but it seems they cannot afford to. Ed is this what you are hearing too?

Mike18 {editor's note – that would explain the hold up, I know Fergie would love to add Defour but his injury scuppered the deal initially. I was expecting it to go through in January instead, but if he is nearing fitness it would make sense.}(23)(24)

SOUTHAMPTON FC NEWS:

Saints are to up there bid to sign Nathan Tyson from Nottingham Forest from £400,000 to £600,000 after £400,000 was rejected last night.

Benjani is not coming because of interested Premier League clubs that want to sign him which are; Fulham, Blackburn and West Ham who are looking Favourites to sign to Striker.

Nathan Tyson is talking to Southampton and has nearly agreed terms, it is believed Southampton have gone back to Forest with a £450,000 bid after their original offer of £400,000 was knocked back.
However the only way this bid will be accepted is if Cardiff accept Forests' £1.5m bid for Peter Whittingham, Forest will also demand money should Southampton be promoted from league one this season. So the deal overall will be worth around £500,000 to Forest which will please the board as it means they will effectively get Whittingham for £1m and boss Billy Davies will have more money to spend to help push for the Premier League.(42)(26)

8 Medicals Booked in Ross Hall Next Week.

Don't know who they will be, but expect a few to go aswell as a possible 8 coming in!

I know is one is Biram Kayal from Maccabi Haifa. He is a defensive midefielder.

So i think the other 7 medicals will be for:

1 GK (Not heard anything concrete on goalkeepers)
3 DF (2 CB, 1 LB again not heard anything)
1 Winger (Liam Lawerence is likley)
2 ST (Bellamy and Gary Hooper are what i've heard)

Too much too soon perhaps, however alot of the guys have played with each other at some level. (Bellamy and Ledley, ChaDu Ri and Ki, Lawerence and O'dea + McGeady etc.)

Saying that Lawerence will not have McGeady to play with, he will be sold to Aston Villa for £8 million.(41)(33)

RANGERS FC.

after what martin bain said yesterday regarding rangers, he said players in last year of contracts, we need to strike a balance, so expect possibly 23 players out door, as rangers can not improve there contracts at the clubs, expect bougy to leave if rangers get good offer for him, lot of talk about miller, and as we all know miller is the type of player that if not liking what see's he would jump ship. also been said whittaker, could be looking for a move. so i do believe 23 players leaving rangers.

martin bain did say, they have not put any offers for players, only eagles. so all this talk of this player and that player is false.

rangers will be waiting to around august, to see what players leave, to see what funds he has to play with before he even looks at players, so don't expect anything happening till the squad back from austrailia.

all this talk of 5 million, and 10 million for players is nonesence and some fans need to look at big picture instead of thinking everything is great at our club, when it is not.

at end of day massive debt, rangers where put up for sale, but nothing happening as club is not in a good state of finances.

so any money that does come in for players, part of those funds will be used for the debt, contracts, and what left for transfers. so just because got 2 million for wilson doesn't mean 2 million to his kitty, and it was not 5million, that is just add ons on first team apperances and extras so stop gettin carried away with the 5million reported.

fans need to realise, players use will probably bring it will be bosmans, or players from spl or abroad that are in final year of contracts, so don't expect anyone of world class quality because isn't going to happen, and with the amount of debt at club, expect the new policy of rangers for few years now, is to bring in young players and mould them into good players(44)(10)

Why are Arsenal not making an official complaint against Barcelonaand their players?? they are taking itin turns to destabilise the situation and should be punished by UEFA.
IKE."

Perhaps they'll get a better deal if they keep schtum, much like the Berba and Ronaldo transfers. The selling club inevitably get a higher price for agreeing not to take the matter up with the footballing authorities. No one knows what was said between Wenger and Fabregas in their wonderful phone conversation. Perhaps Wenger is playing a blinder by letting Barca run their mouths off he's no mug when it comes to transfers and he also doesn't stop players who want out, he just makes sure he gets top dollar for them. I'd say every time a Barca player opens their mouth publicly (as we all know they're trying to coerce him privately) it makes Wenger's bargaining position that little bit stronger. I'd expect a decent players plus cash deal at the end of this (if he is to move) that at least equals Arsenal's valuation. Unsettling a player may help them force a move but it rarely ends up being cheap.(30)(16)

Grayson is said to be conisdering his options after Leeds only managed 1 goal in 3 games including a shock and rather embarassing 40 loss to Bury.

Hooper will decide on his future by next week then Grayson will consider other targets but only after Hoopers future is resolved. Other strikers in contention are Delfuenso, Lita, Maynard, Simon Cox and Rob Hulse. Leeds also want another defender and midfielder, if not the Brazillian trialists then the favorites are DeMerit, Riggot, Koren and Russell all of whom can be had on a free.

No players will be signed until next week, Grayson wants the triallist and Hooper saga out of the way so he can assess what his squad will need for the Championship. Expect at least 3 more signings but don't expect big spending with Grayson likely to only shell out on a striker unless it is a loanee.

Grayson is keeping his options open by remaining in contact with a number of players.(56)(20)

Alot of talk about milner to liverpool.any truth in this ?"

Personally, i'd say no. Liverpool need to strengthen in a few positions and won't likely blow all the money form the Masch sale on one player, there are better and cheaper alternatives, they're just not English or playing in the Prem so their price hasn't skyrocketed.

If it were to happen it'd depend upon whether Hodgson could pull off his other deals by way of low instalment payments or partexchanges. If this were done and O'Neill still wasn't too peeved about Liverpool unsettling Barry (perhaps he saw it as being being Benitez rather than the club) then there's a very slim outside possibility. He's still far more likely to join City though, as they have Ireland to throw in as a makeweight which would probably be too good an offer to turn down.

Still, stranger things have happened, Benitez thought Barry was better than Alonso and turned down any Madrid midfielders in favour of an injured man. Maybe O'Neill will go similarly crazy and try to spite City.(33)(31)

Everton believe they are still favourites to bring Donovan back to the PL. Donovan would prefer a move to Everton hes had terrible times on loan in Germany and believes Everton are the perfect fit for him, hes not willing to sit on the bench in |East Lands and be used as PR exercise.

Expect decisions on Pienaar and Artetas futures to be announced next week, signs are both will sign new deals.

Everton will sell Yak if they get £8.5m.(42)(17)

Sol Campbell has AGREED a new deal, which will be made official once his honeymoon finishes.

This will make Schwarzer the top target.

If Milner completes his move to City then De Jong could join Arsenal.

Nemanja Vidic will be going nowhere this summer. The rumour regarding Vidic to Real Madrid has been the biggest nonstarter of all time. I've lost count of the amount of times he has come out and said that he will stay at Old Trafford until 2012 at the earliest, and that he is very happy and has no desire to leave in the coming future. People put 2+2 together and got 1, 433, 786 when Vidic's agent purportedly said "Vidic is concentrating on the World Cup and therefore doesn't want to speak about club matters". I've sat back and watch this story snowball out of control for months now. He'll sign a new contract before January and suddenly all of the guys "in the know" will be backpeddling as usual.

Tip: Don't believe everything you read in the Daily Star ;)

Liverpool: With Cole, Reina and Gerrard all playing for LFC next season im sure Torres will stay as City have too many strikers, Utd can't afford , and chelsea are focused on (in my opinion) the young pele , neymar. Expect Roy and Purslow to be signing the most likely Taiwo as he wants to move or Bridge. Huntelaar is most likely to move to LFC if anyone as they need another experienced good striker (Remy is looking bound to go to The Hammers). If Masch goes to Inter then Van der Vaart would be prefered replacement as Liverpool have been interested in the past . This means a changed formation with Gerrard in CM being the playmaker, Van der Vaart and Huntelaar playing behind torres in CAM and Cole on LW and Maxi on RW, Torres up front alone.

You heard it first from JJ96

Well JJ96 what a load of rubbish that is! So Huntelaar who every manager who has ever worked with him states 'comes into his own in the box' is going to play in CAM?! I know it is just your opinion, but when they are that bad you really shouldn't state them in public.(24)(28)

 

 23 Jul 2010 09:43:43
Does any one know why nobody has officially moved for Ozil? I don't get it. The boy's value is as low as it will ever be due to his contract situation and it is thought he could go for 20mill or less. Even in todays climate this is a total bargain. He's so young he has the best years of his career ahead, has enormous selling potential in the future and is already an established international midfielder who we know is quality from the WC. Does his attitude stink? Is he one of these i will always be a one club player types? Ed share any light? I would have thought teams like Utd, AC Milan, Juve, Munich, City, Chelsea, Arsenal would be all over this guy??

Paddy(18)(18)

 

 23 Jul 2010 09:49:50
To the guy who said this
"Remy, Huntelaar, blah, blah going to Liverpool. Actually I can't see Liverpool signing any new striking talent until Torres has made up his mind if he's staying or going. Think about it. If Torres stays then the available budget is (by default) lower and any strike partner will need to have complementary skills. If he goes then the transfer budget available from his sale to replace him will be huge (assuming the board have this policy) which theoretically puts a higher quality "lead" striker on the LFC wanted list. So expect Torres to clarify his future by the beginning of next week and at least one new striker to follow quickly after. If new strikers are bought before the Torres announcement then that would suggest he's already decided if he's staying or going and the striker who is bought may give us all a clue as to FT's decision. Rest assured Liverpool fans, it's a winwin situation.

One of either FT or Masch will have to be sold if we're to have enough funds to rebuild a squad with anything vaguely resembling strength in depth which was one of the main reasons for last season's failures. My money's obviously on Javier going."

LFC need to rely on more than one striker/player and torres knows this. Therefore a new striker will be signed regardless as if they sell torres they will then use the money not all of the money to buy a another hopefully world class striker. Lets remember the americans still own the club therefore if torres gets sold for 70 million it would be highly unlikely that roy will get all that money to play with anyways.(25)(27)

ARSENAL
Campbell ~ Signing for another season
Schwarzer ~ On his way to the emirates
Fabregas ~ Top quality replacement will be signed only if he departs
I believe Arsene Wenger will make use of the younger members of his squad, such as Wilshere, EmmanuelThomas, etc.
With the sale of Eduardo, Merida (a fee will be paid due to the regulations) & probable sale of Simpson & Almunia, Wenger will probably cover the cost of signing Schwarzer & Kolcielny. Leaving Arsenal with a balanced squad.(27)(19)

As an Arsenal supporter, I really do hope there is an element of truth in the Adebayor to Spurs rumour! I would love to see those sad acts lumbered with the lazy, pedantic upstart!

As for a replacement for Eduardo Chamakh, Van Persie and Bendtner plus one of Gilles Sunu, Benik Afobe or Jay Emmanuel Thomas (who has been impressive in preseason games so far) means Wenger really doesn't need to bring in a replacement. Both Arshavin and Walcott are also capable of playing more centrally too. If he does feel we need to raise the numbers again then expect that decision to made in January (subject to potential injuries to RVP/MC/NB). Certainly won't be anyone expensive or overhyped either the money we have available will be invested in a CB, CDM back up and a GK.(29)(15)

While I agree with the Editor he's not that good. 9m + Gibson? That has to be the worst deal anyone could come up for Villa. Gibson is a terrible terrible player. We have a much better up and coming midfielder in Barry Bannan and soon to be Gary Gardner.

Cannot believe a rumour I've just read on here!

Real Madrid will sign Carvalho, Vidic & Mascherano then play 451 having Kaka, Alonso, Mascherano, Van Der Vaart & Di Maria in midfield then Higuain up front on his own? That done it for me.. You're telling me that they will leave Ronaldo out of the team? A player they spent £80m on? You're crazy!!

Onto real rumours..

Roy Hodgeson is apparently interested in making a loan move for Jan Klass Huntelaar.

Man United are thought to be lining up a £13m bid for Steven Defour.

I'm pretty confident, no VERY confident that VDV will not be in that starting midfield in front of a certain £80million pound Ronaldo! Unless Real want Vidic that badly they are willing to swop, now that would be a story!!

I reckon MON would do it too, after the Barry fiasco last season!! SAF not intersested in Ballotini, he has other targets that, as always, he keeps pretty quiet!

Bridge will not be the only LB signing, and
i fully expect another striker to be bought seems Babel to Milan for Huntelaar is likely,

Okay, so Lennon has stated the need for a GK, CB, LB and an attacking player as we now have a "balanced midfield". Here are the options:

GK: James/? only really James linked so far, would prefer someone younger

CB: Ramis/Campbell probably Ramis, but Campbell may come if James agrees.

LB: Ibrahima Camara versatile, cheap, good quality.

Attack: Bellamy looks a cert to come in on loan. McGeady to Villa could fund Keane's return. If not then McFadden, who is in the last year of his contract, is a possibility. And Hooper, who Celtic see as the new Scott McDonald, will only come at the right price.

And OUTS:

Hinkel, Samaras, McGeady, Sherridan, Ferry, Caddis, Hutchison, Wilson. Josh Thompson possibly out on loan, maybe the s will be interested since they're eager to replace a young centre back they lost recently :)

Man Utd: Im sorry Manc fans but this Ozil and Snjeider rumors are fake, i don't think that Ferguson dosent want them or wouldn't muy them, but united are heavily in debt and Sir Alex said he is happy with his squad that he has now , dening any big moves, but there is still hope for Ninis and i think he will join. Formation will stay the same for next season unless Vidic moves which he proboably wont.

Liverpool: With Cole, Reina and Gerrard all playing for LFC next season im sure Torres will stay as City have too many strikers, Utd can't afford , and chelsea are focused on (in my opinion) the young pele , neymar.

Bellamy to go to Celtic

Craig Bellamy is getting pushed out the door at Eastlands with Mancini trying to buy every striker in the world

He has said that he won't join another EPL team

He won't go abroad

His other preferred choice of destination would be Cardiff BUT:

Cardiff City are under an enforced transfer embargo which means they aren't allowed to bring any players in untill they have paid HMRC (which won't be anytime soon because they can't even afford to pay Motherwell the 300k they owe them from Paull Quinn's transfer) so even if they had the money they couldnt sign him.

Which leaves Celtic, if he doesn't change his mind about joining another EPL club they are his only option.

"Infact, Real Zaragoza had the option to sign him but haven't since took up this offer , so before you go correcting someone , have a look yourself before you do so."

I apologise, I had been informed that the deal had become a permanent one.

Anyway, the main rumours I've heard are that Clint Dempsey of Fulham is a target for Birmingham City & Tottenham Hotspur, and that Lucas Barrios of Borussia Dortmund is being scouted by Man Utd & Chelsea. Any deal concerning him would cost in the region of £16 million, and Dempsey would cost between £7 and 10 million. I've also been told that if Spurs lose out on Dempsey they are likely to chase his American counterpart, Landon Donovan.

The LFC rumour about Wayne Bridge is all a smokescreen, for one Bridge earns a mint at Man City and Liverpool will not be offering anywhere near that. Secondly he is not that good. I have heard that Taiwo will be joining very soon, probably cheaper to buy and a lot less on the wage bill. Very excited about that.(204)(73)

 

 22 Jul 2010 23:56:49
"Agbonlahor £9m Gibson going in exchange"

While I agree with the Editor he's not that good. 9m + Gibson? That has to be the worst deal anyone could come up for Villa. Gibson is a terrible terrible player. We have a much better up and coming midfielder in Barry Bannan and soon to be Gary Gardner.(34)(112)

Real Madrid have targetted 2 defenders and a defensive midfielder, they are Carvaliho and Vidic and Jose wants Masch to team up once again with Alonso in a 5 man midfield which will involve Kaka, Van Der Vaart and Maria with Hiuguin (spelling) up front. If Real can get those 3 they will be dangerous.(36)(113)

In a direct order from their Abu Dhabi owners Manchester City are about to sell an insane amount of players in an attempt to balance the books and get some of the critics of their backs. Richards, Lescott, WrightPhillips, Adebayor, Santa Cruz, Bellamy, Barry, De Jong, Onouha, Bridge, and either Given or Hart could be sold for the right price.(70)(85)

 

 23 Jul 2010 00:22:13
Would love to see an end to the eduardo replacement rumours,
i think the signing of chamack earlier in the summer was the reason wenger was looking to get rid of a striker, so no new strikers will be brought in at arsenal.(80)(34)

 

 22 Jul 2010 23:19:18
Southampton manager Alan Pardew is still trying to get Benjani to the club, although the offer of another year of Prem football with a bottom half team (Newcastle, Wolves, Stoke and Blackburn) may be too much to resist.

Nathan Tyson also remains a target and a bid of £500,000 should clinch it after a £400,000 bid was rejected.

Billionaire owner Markus Liebherr and chairman Nicola Cortese want the club promoted this season and no excuse will be accepted, Pardew thinks the 2 strikers will help nick the vital points to guarantee automatic promotion(30)(66)

Here Goes

Man Utd not to sign anyone else as Fergie is happy with his early signings. Plenty of money thrown into Smalling & Hernandez. Only chance Utd got of signing anyone will be if Vidic leaves which is up in the air at moment. If Vidic does leave then Right back will be where cover comes in, but could still be highly unlikely. So can we stop all this bull about Ozil, Huntelaar, Suarez etc etc as they will not happen. All just fantasy! Utd fans will have to come back down to Earth and realise that the money isn't there anymore.(56)(63)

 

 22 Jul 2010 23:25:46

 22 Jul 2010 23:35:42
Liverpool are in talks to sign Wayne Bridge, Man city have lots of LB, and Bridge is no longer in Mancinis plans, Bridge should sign for Liverpool in the next few days after the two clubs can agree a fee and personal terms with Bridge. Mascherano will be off soon to Inter Milan to be with Rafa Benitez, so expect us to bid for another defensive midfielder. Also some fringe players will be sent out on loan such as spearing, amoo etc. The likes of darby, kelly and pacheco to be given chances in the first team. Riera, Degen, Ngog to be sold.
